Keeping to its theme ‘BERJAYA inspires lives and widens horizons’, the Open Day offered students and parents the opportunity to experience BERJAYA UC’s unique Immersion Methodology through a range of exciting workshops including Retail Visual Merchandising, Fine Dining Etiquette, Breadmaking 101 and Careless Whisper: Art of Communication.

But, with so many learning options and study paths to choose from, BERJAYA UC was aware that some students may still be unsure of what they want to do. Luckily, the Department of Student Services was there to encourage them to take the RIASEC Career Test to help students realise their areas of interests. In addition, students were also given academic counselling about the various programmes and scholarships offered, in order to help them make the right decision.

The fun and learning didn’t stop there — students and parents were also given the opportunity to attend inspiring talks by two celebrities from the hospitality industry.

Shaun Liew, owner and Restaurateur of Wizards @ Tribeca, Yellow Brick Road in Damansara and Common Craftsman as well as Malaysia’s Brewer’s Cup Champion 2017, demonstrated his brewing abilities to more than 50 students in the Coffee and Tea Academy.

Star of Asian Food Channel’s Family Kitchen, Sherson Lian, also offered valuable insights to students interested in studying culinary with the hopes of opening their own restaurant one day.

“I wasn't as privileged to join culinary from the start. I had to make a lot of mistakes simply because I didn't have the foundation of what it took to be in culinary,” he revealed to students, explaining that taking a culinary course will give them a head start towards becoming a professional in the culinary arts industry. According to him, students interested in becoming entrepreneurs will also benefit from a business management course or MBA.
